Exciting movie with dirty cops, corruption, intrepid reporters, shoot out and violence
8 February 2008 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

The film deals about the powerful Edison foundation and the elite force called F.R.A.T. At the beginning movie is told by off-voice with following words: ¨You're big venue now. Global commerce,sports franchises, chit-char cafés. But you don't get it because you don't see it. Life is not what you think it is. Because of guys like us, you can go on thinking it, till reality sets on. Reality's annoying. The first thing you do when it hits you is wonder where we are , we do our crap. But remember, it's a dirty world. And without us, it's be a whole lot dirtier. Welcome to Edison! ¨.

Agent Deed(LL CoolJ) and his violent pal, the sergeant Lazerov(Dylan McDermott)pull off a busting into domicile of Rook and Isaiah. Lazarev kills Rook and steals cocaine,money and arms; Isaiah is accused and convicted in courtroom. A young investigative journalist named Pollack (Justin Timberlake)with aspiration to win Pulitzer prize investigates the evidences and unearth deeds about complete corruption of justice system and abuses with brute force by police force. Then, his life and his sweetheart(Piper Parabo)are threatened, but she goes in coma. As he teams up with his jaded newspaper editor(Morgan Freeman), once-famed photographer in Cambodia, and an investigator(Kevin Spacy)working for district attorney,DA(Gary Elwes).

This exciting film packs noisy action, car chase, explosion,shoot out, and continuous intrigue . It's a noir movie plenty of suspense, thrills, dirty cops with a Police Departmment corrupt and some of violence for police brutality and shots in the forehead and the back. The movie is well performed by a plethora of excellent actors, Freeman, Cool, John Heard and a sensational baddie by Dylan McDermott, among others. Colorful cinematography and stirring musical score by Machine Head. The motion picture is professionally directed by David Burke, though with some flaws. Rating : Acceptable and passable.
